Yup. Pretty much all of his stuff is. I don't think I've seen a single map come from him that wasn't.
yaaaaaa... he has that effect on everyone ..... we're thinking of getting him cloned so he'll produce twice as many twice as fast...

@del: yes there should be a covering of snow around, but as you say - there would be very little to see. I'm claiming there was a thaw and a freeze
@Ghalev: That's a bold statement - go and look for theRedEpic on here. He does hand-drawn way better than me. Nevertheless, I am very grateful for the compliment. That means a lot from someone of your pedigree.
@ everyone else; Thanks a lot for the compliments - apart from the cloning (and gratuitous world destruction talk) . I'm having a lot of fun fiddling with this style trying to get a few different things to work - while also getting maps out in a reasonable time. A new campaign is focussing the mind. The rest of the maps for tomorrow's game will have to be a little less finished...
However I can't help fiddling with this. You'll note the resolution dropped between the last few iterations from 3000 to 2000 px per side. My laptop was complaining. Looks like I'll have to do all the dodge/burn stuff at this scale and then resize up later
I still need to work on the trees - they are currently entirely basic and need a little TLC. I'll have a shot at it tomorrow before I go to work and post an updated WIP.
utterly brilliant, Torastan! this should be a picture in a novel or something. Really wonderful work.
Wow, that's much higher praise than this deserves! The players are only one it for one fight
I don't have enough superlatives for how awesome this map looks.
I think my favorite thing about it, other than everything, is the texture on the roof. Looks great.
